Snow today, ice on the way

As if the weather on Tuesday wasn't crazy enough... it appears we will have some even crazier weather over the next 48 hours. Today snow will arrive in the late morning and move out of here by the evening hours. The snow will mainly affect the Northern Miami Valley and the far south may not see much of anything. Right now I am thinking 1-2" to the far north with around 1" still for US36 to I-70. South of I-70 less than an inch and continuing to decrease in depth the farther south you would go. Not terrible, but enough to leave a nice little coating for the north.

Tonight we will see the clouds break up a little and temperatures will be in the low teens for Friday morning. Snow will move in briefly Friday night followed by warmer temperatures in the upper atmosphere. This will thaw out the snow as it is falling to the ground and change it to rain but the temperature at the surface will be below freezing so it will freeze on contact with the surface...freezing rain. We could have a light coating of ice by Saturday morning, but temperatures will warm through the day helping to melt the ice. Be careful Saturday morning. We will keep a close eye on this system as it approaches because a degree or two temperature change will really affect what falls from the sky. I hope to break down the forecast for Friday night with more detail tomorrow once we can nail down the temperature changes. Temperatures will warm up a little for the weekend and remain rather mild heading into next week with another system early next week containing a little rain. Stay safe and have a good one!
